WINNER / SILVER MEDAL WINNER / SERJEANT AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE IN DRAWING WINNER / SOM FOUNDATION TRAVELLING FELLOWSHIP GILLIAN LAMBERT UNIVERSITY OF WESTMINSTER House at Gallions Reach Tutors: Simon Herron, Susanne Isa This house is a laboratory for an architect preoccupied with weather. Taking as a cue the 19th-century tale of Turner lashing himself to the mast of a ship to experience a storm at sea, and looking at the careful manner in which John Soane built up his Lincoln's Inn Fields house-cum-office, this proposes a dark and leaky world in which nature would ood into a house beside the Thames. A laboratory constructed in the basement of the University of Westminster allowed experimentation with light and mirrors. Building from these speculations, a house which tests the limits of domesticity and enclosure was designed.
